Country Update: No country update report was received nor was one received for WGC2005 or WGC2010. The data reported here is based on a report by Henneberger et al. (2000) and personal communication with Henneberger (2009). Geothermal water from an operating well is bottled and sold as mineral water, and also used to heat a nearby guesthouse. Two wells produce CO2, one for a bottling plants and the other for a dry-ice factory. These wells also supply hot water to the Ankavan Sanatorium, a facility dedicated to the treatment of stomach ailments.

Geothermal water from an operating well is bottled and sold as mineral water, and also used to heat a nearby guesthouse. Two wells produce CO2: one for a bottling plant and the other for a dry-ice factory. These wells also supply hot water to the Ankavan Sanatorium, a facility dedicated to the treatment of stomach ailments. 

Using numbers from Geothermics (Lund et al., 2005), it is estimated that the capacity is 1.0 MWt and the use (mainly for bathing and swimming) is 15 TJ/yr.
